Read Narrative
Performed the week of 24 January. 'The author himself played the gardener in a vigorous and manly style. The part of the Vicar received admirable treatment in the hands of Mr Albert Ward, whilst a capital portrait of the Vicar's wife was contributed by Miss Kitty Lofting. The sketch was well received, the audience cheering the heroic sentiment of the gardener which that enthusiasm which betokens success.' (The Stage, 3 February 1916)

Read Narrative
"Originally produced at the New Theatre, Cambridge, this sketch is obviously intended as a warning against permitting the uninterned alien to remain in our midst, and it should find favour among popular audiences." "There is excellent material in the sketch, which will go much better when played a few more times." "Miss Katherine Harrowby is excellent as the patriotic wife and Mr. A. E. Mayne is very successful in the difficult portrayal of Hans Hanger. The Oscar Wech of Mr. Beresford [?] is defty handled, whilst a pleasant relief is provided by Mrs. Henry Gasgoigne as the landlady, Mrs Higgins; and the detective displayed by Mr. John Mason. The piece was excellently received by an appreciative audience." "The Era", 25 April 1917.
